[chekhov]: "Houston; we have a problem"!
Indeed WE do, on SPACESHIP EARTH.
Something that has long irritated me, which I thought I'd get off my chest, is how Europeans (white men) are collectively given the blame (mainly by their own moral supremacists) for their dominant role in Nazism, Apartheid, Jim Crow and countless other shameful examples of human behaviour, but when it comes to achievements that (ethnic) Europeans have every reason to be collectively proud of, like putting men on the Moon (notwithstanding the contributions of others), they are not considered European achievements at all, but the achievements of "Americans" or of ALL mankind.
